NEW SCHOOLS AND MODERNIZATIONS

We believe that, wherever they live, students deserve a great education, great teachers and high-quality places to learn.

The Board of Trustees approves and submits our Three-Year Capital Plan to the provincial government each year to ask for funding for new schools and major modernizations. ¬ť∂Ļ…Ámadou decides and prioritizes which projects go into the plan, and the which ones get funded and when funding will be received.

Our Board of Trustees continues to ask the government for much-needed funding for new schools in growing areas of our city, as well as funding to modernize older schools to make sure all students are in high-quality learning environments.


NEW SCHOOLS
